  • The entrance to this bathroom was formally from the main lobby/entrance area of the home.  In redesigning the bathroom, the existing door was blocked off and a new door was positioned around the corner in a corridor, giving more direct access from the bedrooms and more privacy away from the main-entrance area.    The tub was removed and replaced with a fully tiled wall shower.   The toilet was
